JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Oct. 22, 2008) - The ETSU men's soccer team will host Mercer Thursday at 4 p.m. at Summers-Taylor Stadium as the Bucs look improve in the Atlantic Sun conference standings.
The Bucs (5-7, 1-4 A-Sun) are coming off of their first ever A-Sun conference win in ETSU history, defeating USC Upstate Sunday on the road 2-1 in overtime. Aaron Schoenfeld (Knoxville, Tenn.) had an outstanding performance last time out, as he had an assist and the game-winning-goal against the Spartans.
Mercer's (1-8-4, 1-3-2 A-Sun) only win on the season came on Oct. 2 when the Bears defeated Florida Gulf Coast, 4-1. Mercer tied Belmont last weekend, 1-1, and lost to Lipscomb, 4-3. Bolade Ogunmade leads the Bears offensively with six goals on the season, including the game-winner against FGCU.
Every fan who brings an old pair of tennis shoes to the game will be admitted for only $1 in correlation with the "Kicks for Bucs" promotion.
The game can be seen tape delayed on ASun.TV. Please visit www.ETSUBucs.com for more information on men's soccer or any other Buccaneer athletic news.
